    Not sure if this subject has come up before so Joshua can moderate if necessary.

    Thought this could be an opportunity for people to promote various Reserve Defence Forces units. I'll start the ball rolling.

    If you're from Dun Laoghaire- Rathdown / South County Dublin / Wicklow you may be interested in this website:

      Hmm, contact addresses and phone numbers for RDF units are available HERE.

      This thread will be allowed to run providing that you promote your own unit and do not engage in inter unit slagging,( excluding pa`s that is.)

              If anyone wants a training programme for their PC for the SINCGARS I have one that I got off a US National Guardsman's website. Google it and you will be rewarded (eventually)

              Take these men and women for your example.
              Like them, remember that posterity can only
              be for the free; that freedom is the sure
              possession of those who have the
              courage to defend it.
              Liberty is being free from the things we don't like in order to be slaves of the things we do like.
              If you're not ready to die for it, put the word freedom out of your vocabulary.

                One member from each unit can make one post on this thread to include your unit name, brief description, unit location & times of parades. Once every unit has posted the thread will be locked off & set as a sticky.

                That way, prospective recruits in your area, get the relevent basic information and if they're anyway interested they can go down & find out themselves.

                All other posts will be "moderated".

                Regards etc

                    Shouldn't it be every sub-unit ?

                    Given that for some units (eg the West Cork Biys of the 11th Bn or the 15 Bn Kerrymen ) there's a large geographical spread and so one may be more attractive than the other.

                    On PS there's always the website index of all the units if you want to find your local one.

                      If you live anywhere in Dublin ... join the 7th Field Artillery Regiment.

                      The 7th Regiment is as professional a unit as you get in the FCA. If you join us, you will be trained to be as good a Gunner as our PDF counterparts. You will get hands-on with our heavy artillery guns as well as all the standard soldier & infantry skills such as drill, tactics and weapons. You can expect regular weekends and field days along with the formal weekly training programme.

                      If you are interested, come along any Tuesday night to McKee Barracks at 19:45. Ask for the 14th Battery of the 7th REGIMENT (not Battalion!) at the gate. Alternatively, PM me and I will meet you. We are recruiting just now.

                      What's more if you shape up - you will earn the rank of "Gunner XXX" which is far better than being called "Private XXX". And you get to wear this unit flash on your No1s ...
